a poll on the country in a lot of ways. so second, if we had a grand bargain on energy, how to exploit the bounty of natural gas in particular in the environmentally safe and sustainable way on the national basis i think those two things together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and i was saying about the middle east but it may apply to american politics is all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. so, i think -- hearing talking about the election. i don't know how the election is going to come up and make no predictions but i do ask myself if romney gets smashed i don't think the political problem is we have a center left problem and we have a far right party that is a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts in my view. they've been at war -- there's been a simultaneous -- they've been simultaneously at war with physics at the same time. on the deficit and biological l2 mac, some of them for sure. so the question to me is what happens the morning after this election if romney loses. he wasn't far right enou

biden's record, 30-some years of opposing america's energy independence opportunities that we had. joe biden 30-some years ago, voted against the trans-alaska pipeline and henceforth has never supported steps to allow america to be energy independent. if paul ryan can detail what it is that he and governor romney propose to do to allow our private sector to go and thrive and create jobs, including energy independence, the audience will appreciate that. after the debate, paul ryan just needs to watch his back. that's my advice. you know, if things don't go his way, people will be looking for a scapegoat. i hope that people have learned over the last four years that, that doesn't do anybody any good, to throw candidates under the bus, when they did their best, they stood on their record, their principles and their convictions and when the inside baseball crap starts getting played out, that is horrible for the political system. >> greta: governor, thank you. >> greta: tomorrow night, governor palin's father and brother will join us, they just released a new book, called, "our sarah: mad

for the american public so he can point to these three ways he would change energy policies. >> all along, people are saying we haven't hearda lot of specifics in this campaign and they're hoping in the debates to get more specifics, so you have to balance the desire for spechks for putting meat on the bones. >> anderson, problem with this kind of approach is narrowing down and getting in a little box is that the debates by nature should be more conversational. this is a really conversation with people at home. that's particularly true of the format we're seeing tonight. what you found say with a matter debater like reagan, he would get two or three facts into an answer, then build a conversation around the facts and that appealed to people more. they don't want to hear a rat a tat tat. >> that's what the debates have become. >> that's what mitt romney is used to. for the people who say he's had an advantage because he's done 20 debates, he's done 20 debates with lots of people on the stage. it's totally different. >> let's take a look, we got another interview with michelle obama. now to wolf. >
feel mitt romney dominated by bringing more energy to it. how did you see it? >> well, i think the president has always had a certain dignified reserve and i think that's one of the admirable qualities about the president. as i was watching the debate i think what mitt romney really needed tonight was a big game changer. he needed to address the observation that he hasn't had any specifics for all of these great promises. you know, $5 trillion in cuts but it won't add to the deficit, trust me i'll tell you later. eat cake, lose weight. so i don't think he got the game changer he needed tonight. i do think the president was particularly strong, though, in getting governor romney to admit that he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program and i also believe the president was good in drawing the contrast between the two economic approaches, the two economic plans. governor romney believes that tax cuts for the wealthy grow jobs. most of us understand that those sorts of tax cuts are what grow deficits. they don't grow jobs. and president obama and his opportunity economy, i
forward in a new way with a new direction, a new emphasis, for example, on renewable energy, a new emphasis on universal healthcare, a new emphasis on human rights and human dignity education, all of those things that we feel important or going back to the policies of letting wall street do whatever it wants with no government oversight whatsoever. the policies of starting a war here and a war there and a war there and never paying for it. the policies of giving the wealthiest of americans all the tax breaks while screwing the middle class. that's the choice. i thought president obama should have made -- as his campaign has, made that choice very, very clear in his opening statement and said you know, forward with me or backward with mitt. he didn't. and mitt romney, when he got his statement, he went right away and said that guy's been there for four years and look what a mess we're in and i can do it better. it was b.s. but he delivered it right into the camera in a very -- not convincing to me but in a very -- but in a
. listen. >> my plan has five basic parts. one, get us energy independent, north american energy independent that creates about 4 million jobs. number two, open up more trade, particularly in latin america. crackdown on china if and when they cheat. number three, make sure our people have the skills they need to succeed. and the best schools in the world. we are far away from that now. number four, get us to a balanced budget, number five, champion small business. megyn: they liked that, they liked when either man talked about the middle class, and they really liked when they talked about education. barack obama when given the open floor, chris to say whatever he wanted on the first answer of that debate went right to education. some of us wondered why he did that. walmart moms were saying that was one of the most important subjects they heard discussed last night. >> you got it. what these women want to hear about, and i've watched the tapes of the focus groups, not this one but others, and when you hear these women talk about this we are talking about household income 40,000 to
president obama thanks to the wind energy tax credit designed to help these businesses grow. >> mitt romney's message is to get rid of the wind production tax credit. well, that's big here because we've got t.p.i. and trinity both producing wind turbines and wind towers, and that's a critical factor for us to keep those plants moving past 2013. >> reporter: o. kay henderson says these single issue voters add up quickly in such a small state. >> if iowa does again come down to a few thousand votes, these sort of narrow cast issues can have a huge effect. and so that is why you see the obama campaign pushing this so hard, because the wind energy industry has about 7,000 or 8,000 workers in iowa. >> reporter: then there is the fight in plain sight-- the >> romney would jeopardize thousands of jobs and knock the wind out of iowa's economy. >> a prairie fire of debt is sweeping across the nation. >> reporter: the negative ads are on >> reporter: the negative ads on almost every channel, every night. >> i mean, it's almost-- the ads border on being vulgar. >> reporter: steve bump has run a firepl

to boost american energy production. one of the things i suspect governor romney and i probably agree on is getting businesses to work with community colleges so they are setting up their training programs. >> do you agree, governor? >> let me finish my point. >> what's the strategy there? why try to raise romney up to his level? >> yeah, you know, it was one of those moments where i was watching this on twitter where people who supported the president were literally having their heads exploding. this is where you see the obama camp sometimes reading too much into what makes him more popular and likable. i think they see, well, he's a guy willing to compromise and be conciliatory. they didn't want to sacrifice likability in order to go against mitt romney, but unfortunately that's not how you debate. i think they need to go back and stop trying to shore up what's already there, that the president is likable. the president is president so he doesn't have to reinforce presidential sort of bearing. he needs to litigate the case and that's what they need to do better. >> the game is certa
there about the same time barack obama did. he didn't have any trouble with energy. >> no. >> he didn't have any trouble. >> he was wired and on top of it. >> speaking our friends at current. we commented on jennifer granholm's exuberance during the speech. if you tuk her exushance and combined it with barack obama's nonexuberance, you could have found a happy balance there. you have the perfect candidate. >> we could morph them. we need a hybrid. >> can we merge those together? >> emotionally mitt is much closer to jennifer on that scale. he seemed caffeinated and on ludes and stuff like that. >> he had a diet coke and maybe two. >> he seemed much more energized than we've seen. >> think of the republican primary debates. it was newt gingrich and rick santorum. he needed to turn it on in the republican primaries, and he did. >> steve, what do you think the ultimate impact is going to be? is this the game change moment to use the term that we hate? >> i swear we're living in this mirror image of 2004 where the bush role is played by obama and where kerry is played by romney. i remember septe
at a live picture of the president who is on stage in madison, wisconsin. he looks fairly full of energy to me. he appears to be hard-working. what would you say, sir, to mr. sununu? >> i would say to mr. sununu he doesn't know what he's talking about. i have worked with the president over the last four years who has given his blood, sweat, and tears to turn this economy around, and i think he's done a very good job of that and he's still got a lot of work to do. and the fact is that this president because of people like mr. sununu in the republican party, republicans have done every single thing in their power to stop this president from accomplishing what he's accomplished. but he's accomplished more, martin, in his three years and eight months than most presidents do in eight years. so i think mr. sununu needs to take those words back, as we say in the congress. i think it's very unfortunate for somebody to be saying that about this president who has done a great job. >> mr. romney said last night he wants to sit down with democrats and work out a solution to health care and so on. wh
energy independent. that creates 4 million jobs. two, open up more trade, particularly in latin america. crack down on china if and when they cheat. number three, make sure our people have the skills they need to succeed. and the best schools in the world. we're far away from that now. number 4, get to us a balanced budget. number 5, champion small business. it's small business that creates the jobs in america. and over the last four years, small business people have decided that america may not be the place to open a new business. >> people hear that, there is no stuttering, there is no i'm not really sure what i'm talking about here. these are the five things he believes it. there was a lot of conviction that he conveyed last night. >> and i wanted to write all those lists down and a bunch of post its and stick them all over bob beckel's body. he was asking for specifics. you have to pass it on. >> let me say -- >> those are specifics. what exactly makes you think he can deliver on any of that? >> because he's actually someone with a proven record, managing businesses, making money, r

, on the campaign trail, much more energy than he had in the actual debate. 67 million people watched that debate and and the president's performance was judged very lacking. dana mill bank for "the washington post" said this. obama was out of practice, unprepared to be challenged. the white house had supposed that he was reallying on such venues, obama's argument skills atrophied. here is eugene robinson. it was not a disaster from obama's point of view but a bad might and missed opportunity. even if the debate had been no better an draw, obama could have spent the rest of the campaign running out the clock. now romney and the republicans have a new spring in their step. they believe they can win. what was the impact, do you think, of that debate? >> i think the limited polling has been done, that the impact has been very, very limited. the -- the fact is that this president came out and he laid out very carefully his plan for the future. and what he has done. and, again, mr. -- you talked about etch a sketch. we don't know what mr. romney is about. on one hand he talked for the last 18 is month
in colorado is we have a lot more high-tech industry. we have a lot of renewable energy and solar. and we have voters who really care about the environment and the economy. and president obama, his policies really appeal to those voters a lot more. it's interesting that now it's a five-point lead because for about six months, up until a week or two ago, president obama had a narrow one to two-point le lead, so that really shows that president obama is breaking out in some of the key swing states like colorado. >> we shall all be watching tonight to see how things go down there in denver. diana degette, thank you, i appreciate it. >>> up next, painting denver pink. planned parenthood launches an anti romney blitz in colorado. i'm going to talk to the organization's president. >>> plus, bringing sexy back. politico's jonathan allen says biden is number two on the ticket, but number one in their hearts. how the v.p. is winning over seniors. and you can join our conversation on facebook.

and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and long- lasting batteries. the united states today is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have a choice between a plan that reverses this progress or one that builds on it. my opponent said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in tax subsidies every year. we have a better plan that we keep investing in wind, solar, and clean coal, where construction workers are retrofitting homes so they waste less energy, and we can develop a supply of natural gas that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs and we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. that will be good for our economy, for colorado, and that will be good for america, and that is wh
of energy into that. why shouldn't they have the same energy and exposure side-by-side with you and mr. sadler as before the primary? >> we are debating here today. we will debate in a couple of weeks. in the meantime, i am on the road in a different city between just about every day between now and election day. >> but why can not we have another debate? why not the one in houston? what are you afraid of? >> i am focusing on supporting our campaign. that is what we're doing. i'm listening to the voters of campaign -- tx. >> you can build the support in a debate. >> we agree to this one. look -- i understand you are working very hard to get media coverage. it is not our obligation to help you in that. you can go convey your message to texas voters. i am conveying mine. >> is your obligation to face the voters of texas. >> i am doing that. >> as you said, state by tv, is the critical point. you have had the opportunity. even for the tea party debate, which she would not do. why what he faced me now? >> we are sitting here right now. you can launch every attack you want to right now, on
the president had no energy. it didn't look like he wanted to engage governor romney. and the fact of the matter is, you know, you can't beat the champ on points. mitt romney hit a knockout last night. >> yes, he did. new jersey governor chris christie, you are right. you were right about this one. >> i have confidence in this guy. i mean, you know, i've been with him since last october. and like i said, this was no crystal ball moment. i watched him over the last year and a quarter. and every time his back has been against the wall, really against the wall, and it was last night, the guy has come out with a great debate performance. and then you heard mike this morning saying that the same kind of thing happened up in massachusetts. look at the guy's history. this guy hasn't been as successful as he's been in everything in his life by not being competitive and being a winner. and that's what he's done. >> all right, governor. >> chris, it's great to talk to you. come on the show sometime. >> you bet i will. >> see you soon. >> i want to hear from meacham. >> that is, though, it's so interesting
. the rest of it was a waste of time and of energy and made him look, i think, insufficiently interested in the moment. we say in acting we say that we have to be -- we have to find ourselves in the moment, and he was not in the moment. and interestingly enough, mitt romney, whom i accused in my first article that i wrote about this, how to act human, of being unable to relate to the public, was in the moment, for the first time. he found himself in the moment. look, ever since i wrote that article i have been looking for the real romney. i finally decided maybe the real romney was that boss that tells lame jokes at which we're obliged to laugh at peril of our jobs, but that wasn't the person who showed up last night. >> no. >> not at all. >> he reminded me of the way actors like a guy like russell crowe i have met a couple -- i met him once in an interview. he seemed like a regular guy from a street corner, sort of a regular guy. when you see him in the movies, he's playing the master and movie, he's playing the master commander, a big presence, a grand being. romney seemed to trance fi
the things the campaign has spent so much time and energy prosecuting over the past several months. he didn't talk about bain, how mitt romney made his money, didn't talk about the middle class as much in that context as i expected. he didn't talk about the 47%. i know when you're the president you want to be careful not to swing down, but -- >> how about just saying why you're president, why you wanted to be president, why you made the decisions you made, why you didn't want to have 40 million people sitting in the emergency room. >> i think he tried to do that, but i don't think he did it as well as he would have liked, and certainly they're going to take a new approach next time. mitt romney just came to play. mark is right. >> an interesting thing, mark, back to that again, romney seemed to know it was free form. it was like a city basketball game. you know, winners get the ball. every time you make a good shot. it's not like in the nba where you have to turn the ball over. he knew if he kept shooting, he could keep hitting and control the ball, and the ref in this case, lehrer, tried t
romney a lot more energy. it's not unprecedented for an incumbent president to lose a debate. people were watching this and romney performed very well. if he can capitalize on the second look there's a lot he can do in terms of selling policies and arguing against the president. however many undecided voters are left will break one way or the other and that's why these debates so important. >> if the debate gave romney the much needed shot in the arm, the president has to be happy with friday's jobs report, the unemployment rate down 8.1% to 7.8%, now the lowest since the president took office. does that help the president at this point or is the economy baked into this election? >> both things are probably true. the point that you made about the lowest level since he took office, that's important. we're already seeing in polling are more optimism among voters about the economy. that all is to the president's benefit but a very weak rae covery. 114,000 jobs is not very robust at all. you still have a very high percentage of those who have been out of work for six months or more so the eco
its nuclear facilities under the inspection regime of the international atomic energy agency. at the same time we emphasize on the stipulations of the nuclear nonproliferation treaty which we can give rights of all states to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. mr. president, the insistence of the united states and countries of the european union and others to impose unilateral economic measures violate, violates the regulations of international law on the principles of free trade, and raises questions about the legality and morality of such practices. based on this, we call for lifting the embargo imposed on cuba by the united states for decades. we also renew our call for lifting and stopping all unilateral coercive measures imposed on the peoples of other countries, such as venezuela, belarus, iran, syria and the democratic people's republic of korea. mr. president, our aspiration to achieve a positive reform of the international organization stems from our desire to find a world based on justice, security and prosperity for all the peoples of the world, away
four years, in terms of our education system, developing american energy or making sure we're closing loopholes for companies that are shipping jobs overseas or focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states, or closing our deficit in a balanced way, all those things are designed to make sure that the american people, their genius, their grit, their determination is channelled and they have an opportunity to succeed. and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing a fair share and playing by the same rules. you know, four years ago i said that i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i've kept. but i also promised that i would fight every single day on behalf of the american people, the middle class and all those who are striving to get into the middle class. i've kept that promise and if you vote for me, i promise i'll fight just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election an
not so thrilled about, i also think while he didn't do a phenomenal job there wasn't enough energy, he let some opportunities slide by, but i think it maybe lit a fire under some of the democrats who were starting to feel a little confident. a little smug. >> before the debate, even republicans, democrats, they were saying romney is toast. >> jamal: if people do want barack obama to win, if they want the president to get reelected then they have got to get out and vote. grab people and do one more door knock in order to get people to the polls, but the president got back on his game yesterday, and he has some pretty spirited words, some things to say about mitt romney. >> obama: when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [ laughter ] >> jamal: i love that. and he goes on to talk about the real -- the real mitt romney. >> obama: i know it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, and yet
in one day in ohio. we have great energy. the governor's going to win this state, it's going to be close, he's going to win. >> he said race changed on wednesday he's talking about the debate. yeah. i don't think so. i'm not feeling it on the ground. i've been here in ohio. i don't feel it. i think people definitely have an opinion about how the debate went, but at the end of the day it's going to matter about what policies. if mitt romney is going to privatize the medicare program and turn it into a voucher system, and the voucher only goes up two or 3% a year when everyone knows health care costs don't go up 2 or 3% a year, or gut the medicare program, we were a he an older state, we have a lot of seniors that access the medicaid programs for nursing homes, people who have children with disabilities access the medicaid program in ohio, when they see the romney/ryan budget when it hits the ground, he's going to lose. he's just not going to be able to carry enough independent voters. as i said on top of the auto rescue, we have people that have actually felt the obama policies help them.
